Insights and tips on organizing your home and garden

Virtual Organizing for the Hybrid employee


Today, I want to talk about Virtual Organizing. What exactly is it? How does Virtual Organizing work? What are the benefits? And is it the right choice for you?

Initially, when the virus hit, I, along with everyone else, retreated indoors and bided my time till it passed. But it didn’t pass, and we all had to find new ways of working, of entertaining ourselves and living indoors with each other. We had to pivot without a road map of how or for how long.

Cable Management When You Are Working From Home

Today I will be talking about getting all the cables, gadgets or technology, organized on your desk. Specifically, your desk at home. Desk organization is a bit like housework; it’s a necessary inconvenience. Once you have finished, however, it feels damn good and almost therapeutic. Sadly, getting all your cables and technology organized on your desk is not as easy as vacuuming, it’s more comparable to cleaning your refrigerator. You will need to plan when and how you will do it and set aside enough time to complete the job. But remember, it will feel absolutely amazing once you have finished!


Decluttering And Purging Before You Move

In today’s post, I will discuss how to tackle the enormous task of decluttering and purging when you are moving home. A new home is a fresh start: new paint, new rooms, a fresh take on arranging your old furniture. There is a joy in it, purging and paring down your possessions, packing up, moving, creating your new home. Moving can empower you to have a healthier relationship with your belongings. However, moving is rated as one of the top 5 stressful life situations. So, though it is a new start and a growthful experience, it won’t feel so wonderful if it’s weighed down by stuff you didn’t let […]

How To Keep Your Car Organized and Clean

Today I want to look at how to keep on top of car clutter and organization. The clutter that is building up in cars right now is… well Covid Clutter, and it’s adding to our stress levels.

In 2014, I was a spokesperson for the launch of the new Honda Fit here in Toronto. The Ad campaign for the car focused on not where the car could take the passengers (countryside, city driving, concerts etc.) but on the fun the drivers could have in the car with it stationary. The ad campaign did not focus on driving at all – the […]

Help is on its way! Free Professional Organizing

11 months and counting! Amid the stay-at-home orders and social distancing, we are all trying to maintain some sense of “normal”. We have had to transform dining rooms into virtual classrooms or workspaces, turn our bedrooms into meditation and “de-stress” spaces, our living rooms into playrooms. Most of the rooms in our homes are now functioning on two levels. For instance, our guest room is also a gym now.

Homes are no longer just places to relax and recharge, they are community centres, safe spaces, gyms, school rooms, art studios, and offices. There is a deep connection between an organized space and our mental health. And the current global health […]

Great Toy Organization Solutions for your home

I wrote an article on solutions for toy organization and storage some years ago, Nanny Robina also posted it on her site. I am going to revisit this article as I think it’s a good time with everyone still having to stay at home due to the current global health crises. The fallout from the virus has meant that families are now at home all the time; working, living, playing, remote learning, cooking, exercising, and sleeping.  11 months into the pandemic and though there is light at the end of the tunnel because of the vaccine, it is tempered by the fact we are not out of […]

Easy Step-by-Step Plan To Help You Declutter Your Home

Are you feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where or how to start with decluttering your home? Sometimes the most dramatic change you can make to your home — and you and your family’s mood — is decluttering so that the things you love, the features and style of your home, are displayed to their best advantage. When I ask clients what they want to feel in their homes, the most common responses are “peace,” “space”, and “pride”. Clutter keeps us from achieving these goals. Having an easy step-by-step plan for decluttering will help you avoid the overwhelm and take your home from clutter to clarity in no time at […]
